Meet The Salad Project
Q: What’s the inspiration behind your business?
A: To be able to provide access to better food, we want to not only elevate peoples mundane lunch options but to make it easy to make good and healthy choices. It shouldn’t have to be a battle between health and taste. Hopefully, at the salad project, we are able to achieve that.
Q: Where are you from and how has that shaped your business?
A: Both of us (Florian & James) have grown up in the UK (Flo will be quick to note he is French and Italian). We met at a hospitality school in Switzerland and have been firm friends ever since.
